Caprese Amore

So on my never ending search for simple, delicious, and healthy food I created a fun recipe.  I love anything caprese-- salads, sandwiches, etc. but I wanted to find an easier way to make it, thus the revamped caprese topping was born.

4 mozzarella cheese sticks
1 large tomato
A few leaves of fresh basil
Balsamic Vinaigrette

Slice the cheese stick into small rounds.  Dice the tomato.  Chop the basil finely.  Combine mozzarella rounds, tomato, and basil.  Pour balsamic vinaigrette over the mixture to coat thoroughly.  Chill for at least 4 hours or overnight to marinate.  Place on top of grilled chicken, or just eat on its own!
